Lost River Review

Ryan Gosling has written and directed an art film unlike any movies that are getting made these days. In that sense, Lost River is already an accomplishment, it also happens to be beautifully shot, well acted, and deserves to be seen on the big screen.

Home Entertainment: Escape From New York Review

The folks at Shout Factory have been cranking Carpenter classics onto Blu-ray since they kicked off their Scream Factory genre label and have finally secured the rights to one of his most iconic and important efforts with Escape From New York.
The Forger

The Forger Review

John Travolta stars as an art forger about to embark on one last gig so he can spend time with his dying son in this passable potboiler that’s more character study than a thriller or a heist movie.

The Water Diviner Review

Nothing is subtle in Russell Crowe’s directorial debut, The Water Diviner, in which a bereaved father travels halfway across the world to bring his deceased sons home after World War I, but it's not without its entertainment value.
Age of Adaline

The Age of Adaline Review

There is little to no conflict in Age of Adaline, but it's romantic tale that's a nice little bit of escapism for those who like to watch pretty things.
Salvation - Mads Mikkelsen

The Salvation Review

The Salvation is not the art house neo-Western you may expect it to be, but more your basic bloody revenge story that offers up many of the thrills of grindhouse-era genre flicks.
